produced before the TANPIDA Special Court in Coimbatore on Thursday and subsequently remanded to judicial custody at the Coimbatore Central Prison.”

A case under Sections 406, 420 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and 5 of Tamil Nadu Protection of Interests of Depositors (In Financial Establishments) Act (TNPIDA) was booked against the proprietors based on a complaint lodged by one of the depositors, Kailasam of Tiruchengode.
